Hey everyone! My name is Gabby Hanson. I am so excited to be a part of The Prowler during my last semester of high school! I have been a Prowler staff member since my freshman year and have loved...

Definition of Depression

“Depression”

A word no one quite understands

Unless you’re stuck in it

It feels like a void

Dragging you into a hurtful word

Hurtful world 

That forces you to hurt yourself

When I say the word 

“Depression”

I get

“You have no reason to be sad”

What about all the violence 

I see at home

I see at school

I see on the TV

“Depression”

Where I see people’s rights get stripped away

So I have to fight every day 

To keep mine

“Depression”

Is a void that no one can see us in

A void that covers us in a silencing box 

A void that cuts into our skin

 when no one else is around

“Depression”

Is slowly drowning in the sea of tears

people create

“Depression”

A plague that directs itself toward innocents

Causing them to either 

kill themselves

Or 

Kill each other 

“Depression”

The plague that makes my happiness 

As fragile as a broken eggshell

“Depression”

A black fire

It burns my fair skin 

As your sun does you

“Depression” 

Laying in bed sleeping through the day

Only to be thrown out the next 

“Depression”

Telling people you’re fine

 

“Depression” 

Cancer that plagues your thoughts

Depression
